Not a failure, just a delayed success... (?)

As you've all noticed, I haven't been getting around to my blog much this month. As excited as I was to start Nonfiction and Steampunk November, I overshot and didn't anticipate so much to happen this month. Between schoolwork, internship, work, and everything else, I haven't been able to fit as much time in for reading as I had hoped. Plus, I had started reading The Rise of Rome and got a hundred pages in but knew there was no way I'd be able to get it finished. As of right now, I'm continuing with both my challenges but taking my time with it now. I'll get some more reviews up as soon as possible, and hopefully get my challenges finished within some sort of timely manner...

- I gave up on The Rise of Rome by Anthony Everitt; I definitely overestimated my interest in nonfiction and feel like I started the month off with a textbook.
- I started No Easy Day by Mark Owen, an anonymous account of the raid that ended with Osama bin Laden's death in 2011. About a hundred pages in and loving it; it reads almost like a novel because it is so fast paced and unbelievable.
- Continuing my steampunk challenge, albeit at a much slower pace than one story a day. I'm about halfway through the anthology, so about a week behind on my readings. I still have a few to review as well, so look for those over the long holiday weekend.

Keep reading, and keep letting me know what you all think and want to see from me, it really means a lot when I get contacted by authors and readers who stop by my blog. Have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving :D
